." in wednesday's debate you saw romney pushing moderator jim lehrer around pretty much at will. eventually president obama joined in. but here is a flashback of the romne romney/lehrer face-off from jimmy fallon. >> it's my priority to repeal obama -- >> okay, now, governor romney you are well over the two minute allotted -- >> jim, i still have 30 seconds here on -- >> if -- >> jim, jim -- just politely going to hush you up a bit. >> going to keep you. >> na, na, na. >> respect the governor -- >> jim, do us all a favor and just -- i think it's a little weird that you're here still. you can just leave and do whatever you want. >> no, i'm the nod rater here. >> jim -- >> hold on now. i'm going to have to ask you to step down, okay? ja, ja, ja. >> that's just a noise. >> jim, jim, jim, would you shut the [ bleep ] up. >> that was a facsimile i think. more from the debate aftermath. the big bird nonsense continues. how did the former gop candidates feel about the mitt romney pledge to stop funding for pbs if elected president? first, rick santorum last night on cnn. >> would you kill big bird
selling counterfeit drugs that may be dangerous, even deadly. here's abc's jim avila now. >> reporter: it's a moving target of as many as 40,000 active online pharmacies, a huge majority of them fly by night start-ups, that the fda warned today sell at a cut-rate price but deliver expired, contaminated and fake drugs that could harm the consumer. >> you have no assurance of the safety, efficacy or quality of those products. >> reporter: how easy is it to set up an online pharmacy? two uc-san diego medical researchers showed me how they set up their own fake drug store using search engines, facebook and twitter to draw potential buyers. so, do you have to have a pharmaceutical degree to set up one of these websites? >> oh, not at all. we basically created a web ad which was very descriptive. has a medical professional, a picture of a person we just purchased. and we were able to post it online without any verification or requirements at all. >> reporter: it's so easy, setting up a hit-and-run pharmacy is lightning fast to start, and even faster to disappear before authorities can catch up.
romney says big bird's got to go along with jim lehrer. >> does anyone think it's strange that juan is defending pbs? >> i'm not saying. >> that's it for us, thanks for watching, have a great weekend, bye. >> did mitt romney's post debate victory hit a speed bump with the unemployment rate? we'll break down what the numbers mean. this is special report. good evening, i'm bret baier. president obama is hailing the jobs report, showing a drop from 8.1% to 7.8, as a sign the country has come too far to turn back now. his republican challenger says the new numbers are not the sign of a true recovery, in fact, he says they're telling a far different story. the government's household survey says that 873,000 people entered the work force. but the employer survey found 114,000 new jobs created, 10,000 of those in government. so, the difference, about 760,000 are apparently not full-time stable jobs, what's known as the real unemployment mark, the unemployed and those too discouraged to look for work remains unchanged at 14.7%. white house correspondent wendell goler begins our coverage of
. and i also thought that he almost tried to take over being the moderator. jim lehrer is one of the most respected journalists in our country. and certainly probably one of the most experienced moderators in presidential debates that we have seen, but it looked like governor romney was trying to take over his job, too, not just the president's. and it did not come across attractive, at least in my estimation. and i don't know that's what we want. there has to be respect. the president certainly gave it last night in my humble opinion. and i think that's what the american people want, more respect, nor appropriate decorum instead of saying it is your turn to talk when the moderator should control that. >> i don't think he concerned about jim lehrer's job over big bird, but i appreciate it. >>> this is a way for us to watch history, but last night millions of americans were watching history happen two screens at a time. twitter telling us the debate in denver was the most tweeted event in politics. over 10.3 million tweets had to do with the melee in the mile-high city. now the highest spi

? will romney be over the ropes for taxes, bill obama be bum rushed for specifics. will jim lair send them to certain corners. after some debate of our own, we compiled our own list of what to watch. wasn't easy. here's a glimpse into the editorial brainstorm. >> the president has a double-edged sword being the president, because he's got a lot of command of detail, he understands policies, but the expectations are also high and he can come across as a little too arrogant. >> i vote for hates romney as a weakness for obama. to the strength of the president, he knows everything and he's been there and done that for three and a half years, so you can't stump them. >> toure says the president knows everything. romney's clear weakness is awkward and gaffe-prone. >> when he strays off the script and the stuff he knows to talk about, he's likely to see the $10,000 thing. >> i'm happy with gaffe-prone. i don't think he's slow on his feet at all. >> i would say questional improvization skills. >> he has the ability to communicate with a soft touch. he doesn't come across as brazen or jerky. >> i d

mopa lisa? who says crime doesn't pay? jim axelrod on an auction of memorabilia from america's most notorious criminals. >> reporter: this was in clyde's waistband? captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening. it turns out the economy is growing even more slowly than we thought. the government told us that u.s. growth in the second quarter was an anemic 1.7%, but today, the commerce department put out a new estimate showing us it was even less than that, just 1.3%. and this is what caught our attention in the report-- the government said half of the downward revision can be blamed on the drought. it's destroying crops, including the corn in this field le roy, illinois. and on the land clayton arnold has been farming in walker, missouri, for 40 years. a new report today on the drought says it continues to get 5%rse. it now covers 65.5% of the lower 21.5and in 21.5% of that area, the area you see in red, the drought is extreme or exceptional. so we asked anthony mason to dig further into the impact the rtought is having on our
they track terror suspects worldwide. and jim axelrod with a young soccer player who's replaced a missing leg with gallantry on the field. >> i just want to be seen as an equal. captioning sponsored by cbs this is the "cbs evening news" with scott pelley. >> pelley: good evening, and we could add happy new year, because this is the first day of the federal government's new fiscal year. but there's not much to celebrate because the nation is headed toward what's being called the fiscal cliff and there are dire new warnings today about what will happen to american families unless congress and the president reach a budget deal by december 31. that is the day that a series of tax cuts will expire and big cuts in federal spend will take hold. tax experts said today 90% of american families are facing what they call unprecedented tax increases. how much? wyatt andrews is in washington tonight. wyat >> reporter: scott, according to the non-partisan tax policy center, the united states is now on the threshold of one of the largest tax increases in history-- a tax hike that could average $3,500 for ev
is still well above the national average. wolf. >> jim acosta joining us, thanks very much. let's dig deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, this unemployment number, the new number, how important is it to each of these two candidates? >> well, first of all it's got to be a real boost for president obama as jessica was talking about earlier. if not reality, then also a real psychological boost to get below that 8% figure. very important to them. because what it does, wolf, is it plays into the poll numbers that we've already been seeing, which is that people believe that things are getting better. the numbers are still not where the president wants them to be. but if it plays into a sense of optimism in this country, that's very good for the president. but overall you're going to hear the same refrain from both campaigns. the president's going to say that he's added more than 5 million jobs, and mitt romney's going to say there's still 23 million unemployed. >> you've spent a lot of time covering mitt romney. you did that excellent documentary all of
blamed john kerry, the debate prep guy. david axelrod blamed jim lehrer. al gore blamed the altitude. but nobody -- nobody blamed the president for being unprepared and outclassed by mitt romney last night. >> dana, take us deep into the psychology. what was going on? he looked like a man defeated. >> he sort of faded into the background initially. then i thought maybe it will get better. at the one hour mark, i thought wow, this is over. i thought romney was very bold. but he was also something different that he was fresh. and there is a huge gulf between the man that had been painted in the media and by the obama campaign for the last seven or eight months. and then the person they saw last night. that's why i think it was so effective for mitt romney because people were so surprised. wait, like who is this guy? this is not the guy we thought he was. and so he had a great debate. incumbents presidents usually don't do well on the first debate in their election year. so obama will have a couple more chances. no doubt, there is only one person in america who thinks he won the debate.
. the debates go on and on and on. tmz caught up with jim lehrer moderator of the debate. there was this whole controversy over the debaters, the moderators are not supposed to sort of step into the debates and be kind of quiet. maybe was jim lehrer a little too quiet? tmz caught up. this is what he had to say. >> do you feel you were disrespected by president obama and governor romney? >> i didn't expect much. >> they worried that he was treated like a doormat was part of the possibility. >> yeah. they both kind of ran right over him. give me more time. i'm going to continue. jim didn't seem to have a lot of control in the debate. >> it's hard, though, rob. >> it's intimidating. how do you tell the president, how do you control that? has to be a better way. other people have done a better way. i don't think other moderators, whether it's our own martha raddatz or candy crowley, i think you would have seen a different tone. >> should have considered simon cowell. for this role. exactly. >> exactly. >> who was on -- >> jim, 12th, perhaps final. >>> real quick news here. j-lo in paris for fashio
. >> jon: on the panel, judy miller. cal thomas, jim pinkerton and kirsten powers. i'm rick folbaum. we're on right now. >>> has recent events in the middle east given you any pause on the government that have followed arab spring? >> i said at the time this is going to be a rock did i path. the question presumes we could have stopped this wave of change. i think it was absolutely the right thing to do align ourselves with democracy. universal rights. a notion that people have to be able to participate in their own governance, but i was pretty certain and continues to be pretty certain there are going to be bumps in the road. in a lot of these places, one organizing principle has been islam. >> rick: president obama on 60 minutes and numerous remarks on cairo attacks and bump in the road comments ignored by the media and steve had a follow-up on that comment. >> they never follow up with the president. fundamental flaw in the media's thinking as exhibit by steve croft. they say the organized principle is islam. it's not just islam but extremist wing and maybe turkey and deinz but we don
no idea. i have absolutely no idea why. i'm surprised jim lehrer didn't ask about it. i was surprised romney didn't affirmatively try to defuse it himself. i was surprised that obama didn't bring it up. biggest surprise for me of the night is that it didn't come up. it's been the dominant thing in our debate for the last few weeks. >> david axelrod is coming up. jon meacham, you look over the past 25 years, 30 years or so, and you look at the republican presidential candidates who all have strengths, they've all been remarkable men in their own way, but not good debaters. you know, republicans have held our breath through the john mccain debates and the george w. bush debates and the bob dole debates and the george h.w. debates. again, a great man, a horrific debater. you know, the famous jon lovitz line, "i can't believe i'm losing to this guy." playing michael dukakis. you really do have to go back to ronald reagan to find a republican that was in command during a presidential debate. and i predict that's going to excite the republican base in a way it hasn't been excited in a very
despite mitt romney doing this. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs, i'm going to stop other things. i like pbs. i like big bird. i actually like you, too. i'm not going to spend money on things to borrow money from china to pay for it. >> he [ bleep ] fired big bird! he still won walking away. romney won with the sound up. >> you're entitled to your own airplane and your own house but not to your own facts. >> romney won with the sound off. dude, he's yelling at you! look up! look up! what are you looking at? what are you writing that's so important? what are you doing -- oh, that's not -- oh, i didn't realize. that is impressive work. i didn't realize that. maybe you could give that to mitt romney as a souvenir of the night he crushed you in that debate. >> my gosh. okay. >> so that's what he's doing. because i'm sitting there going, what's he doing? >> good morning, everyone. >> it makes more sense. it fills in the blank. >> that gives us proper context. >> it is friday. it is friday, thank god. i need two days away from all of you people. october 5th. >> mika, hold
this is a moment for jim lehrerer to be very tough, respectful tough, and for president obama to come back at him and to say, look, i'm happy to see -- your running mate said he didn't have enough time on sunday. that's too bad. that's terrible, in fact. i'm willing to cede, governor romney -- >> could jim lehrer get away with simply saying i have a little liberty here, a little leeway, i will give you all the time it takes. tell us now what tax breaks you're going to get rid of. >> tell us what tax breaks you're going goat rid of and also please, governor romney, you were very upset about the 47% of americans who pay no taxes. well, they include seniors, the military, and they include the working poor. please tell me, governor romney, exactly which groups you're going to raise federal incomes taxes on of those three groups because you don't like the fact they're not paying taxes. he's a very wonderful man, a warm man, he could be tough but respectful and i think president obama should help him out by saying i'm happy to cede some of my time so you can take the time and lay out all those deductio
when he heard one. the first time his debate opponent senator jim buckley called him professor moynihan. he said ah, the mudslinging has begun. >> jim buckley? he's engaging and honest man who hasn't the soggiest notion what the 20th century is all about. >> now, massachusetts voters have to decide who knows what the 21st century is all about. the republican center who thinks there is no difference between justice scalia and justice sotmayor. or the professor. history is on the professor's side. professor moynihan knocked the incumbent out of the senate. running against a harvard professor is harder than scott brown thinks it is. >>> coming up, in tonight's rewrite, the cast of "the west wing" will teach mitt romney how to win the debate. now, the question you have to ask yourself, with 23 hours to go until the debate, how fast a learner is mitt romney? [ male announcer ] the 2013 smart comes with 8 airbags, a crash management system and the world's only tridion safety cell which can withstand over three and a half tons. small in size. big on safety. with the blackish-blue frame and the
did have his own awkward moderator moment. >> i'm sorry, jim. i'm going to stop this subsidy to pbs. i'm going to stop other things, and i like pbs. i love big bird. i actually like you too. >> one of the most surprising parts of the president's performance was what he did not say. no mention of romney's infamous 47% remark, no talk about bain capital, nothing about romney's own taxes. he did play the romney is a hypocrite card when it comes to health care. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts because governor romney did a good thing working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and as a consequence people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed jobs. >> romney, who ran from his massachusetts health care plan during the gop primaries, now used it to tag to the middle for the general election. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the fact that in 3450i my state we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did instead was to push through a plan without a single rep
, better quality. i believe in competition. >> jim, if i can just respond very quickly. first of all, every study has shown that medicare has lower administrative costs than private insurance does, which is why seniors are generally pretty happy with it. and private insurers have to make a profit. nothing wrong with that. that's what they do. and so you've got higher administrative costs, plus profit, on top of that, and if you are going to save any money through what governor romney's proposing, what has to happen is that the money has to come from somewhere. and when you move to a voucher system, you are putting seniors at the mercy of those insurance companies, and over time, if traditional medicare has decayed or fallen apart, then they're stuck. and this is the reason why aarp has said that your plan would weaken medicare, substantially, and that's why they were supportive of the approach that we took. one last point i want to make. we do have to lower the cost of health care. not just in medicare -- >> in a minute. >> but overall. >> okay. >> that's a big topic. >> i want to get to it
? let's go to jim acosta at the rally in fishersville, virginia. trace adkins, i guess, is going to perform there. they're getting ready for a big, big blowout. >> reporter: that's right, erin. they are blowing this day up. you could say this is a #winningday for the romney campaign. trace adkins is on stage. and we saw the evidence of this all day long from the gop nominee, when he got on board his campaign plane earlier this morning. he was already cruising at a higher altitude, erin, chatting up his campaign staff. there was a smile on his face. and, honestly, erin, i've been covering this campaign for a year and a half. this was one of the happiest days that i've seen on the part of this campaign and its staff for some time. but you could tell that things were starting to change during the day, as the president was starting to mount that new offensive, going after mitt romney on his statements last night, calling into question whether or not the gop contender was telling the truth during last night's debate and putting out that new ad that said if we can't trust him on the de
hours away. let's go straight to denver and to jim acosta. and, jim, does team romney, do they see the polls we ran through, is this a sign the race is tightening, is the wind in romney's sails, is it there going into tonight? >> they do, actually. i just got off the phone with a couple of romney campaign sources, brooke. i can tell you that the romney campaign does see this race tightening right now and that their game plan for tonight, as it was laid out to me, is to make sure that trajectory as one romney campaign source put it continues. they want to see the race continue to tighten. it is interesting to give you a couple of nuggets i got off the phone call a few moments ago, they are not going to be looking for a knockout punch tonight. what they're hoping to do for the american people is show a contrast, a clear contrast as they call it between the president's handling of the economy and what mitt romney would do were he elected president to fix the economy. so that is basically the game plan from the romney campaign, do no harm and live to fight another day. >> it is interes
everything we can to make maps better. this is significant. if only symbolically, guys, david, jim, we don't hear apologies out of this company very often if at all. >> there has been very little to apologize for. this is a true gaffe. those who have read the fabulous book would know steve jobs i believe would never put an inferior product in people's hands even if it meant an apple product that he could lay claim to. and this was a major departure. we saw this with microsoft. jobs would make deals with microsoft. he didn't want to make a deal with microsoft but obviously if it was a better product he did it. >> yeah. he did. and people have raised the question as to whether steve jobs was still alive and running the company whether maps would have been released in this state or he simply would have said you stink it stinks you're fired make it better. >> you stink and i don't like you. >> also in the book it was very clear steve jobs had, not had it in for but really watching android, wanting to block that out as a competitor. this was one way of keeping google a competitor off the apple
weeks on that, chris. i think every debate moderator starting with jim lehrer tomorrow night is going to demand specifics in the way chris wallace tried to do last week on fox. and i also think that the numbers are emblematic of values in this case. people want to know about mitt romney. they're undecided. i disagree with chuck a little bit. i think people are prepared to blame the president enough to dismiss him if, as chuck says, they are secure about romney. it's that last piece that romney hasn't done, and forcing him to discuss the details of his tax plan is not a way necessarily to win those undecided voters at this point because i doubt that many of them like the idea of a big tax cut for millionaires. >> what do you think, chuck, of george wills' column where he says america will advance when it learns how to fire a black president, an african-american president. we haven't advanced that far. what do you make of this comment in his column today? like the orioles fired frank robinson. >> i have talked to a lot of republicans who believe that they do believe that there is a high
straight, not flinch, not back off and recognize he will be double teamed. the fact is, jim lehrer is part of the cultural left. so romneyville to communicate pastlerrer and past obama to reach the american people. if he does that, i think he could have a very good night. i think you could see a very different races by thursday morning. >> greta: why do you think jim lehrer will be unfair? he has the spotlight on him. i mean, you know, he -- i assume he will try his best to be fair? >> he will try his best to be fair. i am not saying he is partisan. i am saying he comes out of a news media culture, the whole network of where he lives and operates, what he does, which has the assumptions of the left and which asks questions on the framework of the left. they are very often ntheir mind being totally neutral, when they ask request questions that clearly reflect the biases of the left. that's a key part of this. >> greta: do you think that in general, moderates try to pit one candidate against another, to generate a spark in order to generate news? >> i think all too often, moderators try to p
." joining us from the campaign trail, jim acosta with the romney campaign and jessica yellin is in madison, wisconsin with the obama campaign. are the obama campaign at least off the record admitting it was not a good night for the president, putting it mildly. we've heard a lot of spin. do they believe that spin? >> they will say on the record it was not a good night for the president, anderson, yes. they say they will adjust going forward. here's one way they will adjust, i think. you know, the president's biggest asset they believe is his likability, and they want to protect that at all costs but one of the ways they have to do that, it seems they thought was to preserve it by keeping him from going on the attack. that meant he didn't defend his policies enough and that meant that he didn't challenge mitt romney enough. and it came across badly last night. so the challenge for the president is what al gore faced in 2000, where one time he held it back too much, he overcorrected in the second debate and came across as too aggressive, missed the mark both times. the president has to avoid
in national journal economic correspondent jim tankersley. good to see you. good morning. >> thanks for having me. >> you've written a piece out in the national journal today "the case against parasitic baby boomers," and i want to get to that but let me start with the jobs numbers. is this an indication we are turning the corner in the job market? >> well, i would be a little hesitant to say we're turning the corner, but it certainly shows we're headed in the right direction. we have actual solid job growth of the last few months, still not enough to get, you know, 12 million people who need jobs and are looking for them back to bo work, but we're cutting in the unemployment rate for the right reasons. these are really good things. >> as the economists look at these numbers and say where should we have concern, where do we really need to try to boost these numbers, it would be manufacturing? >> manufacturing is the big concern here. i think it was a 16,000 job drop in the last month, and, again, month to month these things can be volatile, but you want that number to be better. it's been a st
american culture? >> among those congressional leaders you spoke with, representative jim cooper who, in his own words, thipnks the system is broken. here's what he had to say in your doc. >> congress is not even being at all positive. >> we have our reaction almost at a screeching halt. >> if there's no bad policy, there is no compromise. >> we're listening to some of the worst influences. >> you heard a collection of voices. almost everyone agrees something not going right, but the only way to kind of right those wrongs is if people are willing to participate. did you get that out of these lawmakers who acknowledge their system might be broken but is there a commitment that they're willing to adhere to to fix it? >> well, i guess what i would say to that is members of congress respond to the people that they hear from, and if they're only hearing from the loudest, most extreme voices, then that's who they're really going to respond to, honestly. if more rational, more thoughtful conversation entered into the interaction with their constituents, i would bet that you would see a chan
